|The Feast in Cana; John 2:1-11
Please come with me, to a wedding feast
at Cana in Galilee. .
We'll find a bride, her groom and priest,
well, rabbi, actually.
While Jesus and His friends came there
to join festivities,
the food and wine were passed with care,
the day designed to please.
When all at once, discovered one,
the jars of wine were dry.
So Mary summoned up her son,
on Him, she could rely.
Come now my son, we need your aid,
the party's getting glum."
But Jesus thought the plans were laid,
"my time is not yet come".
"Of course, your time is here and now"
said Mary with a smile.
The servants met them with a bow,
were bid to wait a while.
Then Mary told the servants there,
to listen to her son,
"obey his word, none can compare,
His time has just begun".
Nearby stood six stone water jars
of thirty gallons each
and Jesus gave particulars,
"fill water to the breach".
"Now draw some out and serve the host",
the host was so surprised,
"what is this wine, you saved the most
delectable and prized?"
We watch as Jesus shares His gift,
a miracle, His first,
to show His acts of love uplift
and also quench our thirst.
